    I just finished upgrading the software that powers PlowSite, vBulletin, from version 3.6.8 to 3.7.3.

    This version brings several new features, including better spam management/prevention, the option to tag posts, and the option to add other users as "friends".

    If you have questions about this upgrade or notice any feature that stopped working, please post here.

    Thanks!

    That picture in my profile is old. :)

    I started working on LawnSite.com 8 years ago (July 2000 if I recall correctly), at the time the forum didn't even have 2,000 members, and PlowSite did not exist. I handled most of the technical work on LawnSite and PlowSite (after its launch) for several years - which includes server management, forum upgrades, and the like.

    I was more active on LawnSite and PlowSite in the past, but now that the sites are owned by Moose River and have staff that can take care of daily operations, I'm not as involved with the sites. I still take care of server management and forum software upgrades, like the one I did today, but I'm not on the sites often.

    Hope this helps! :)

    So if there's spam prevention, do we still have to wait an hour and a half between PM's?
